Tee Madness will be entering it’s 3rd year and is now accepting signups for the competition. From the looks of things the annual popularity contest has grown once again, with an impressive prize pot and what is sure to be a lot of exposure for all the brand involved. Here’s the prizes:

For the first time Adam (from IAMTHRETREND, and organiser of Tee Madness) has chosen to charge a submission fee of $20 for each brand in the contest. I can see why he has felt this is necessary since he does essentially spend a month promoting brands and getting them exposure when the contest probably doesn’t pass on a massive amount to IATT, and whilst he loves t-shirts he probably also loves not being hungry and enjoyed the modern conveniences of electricity and running water. Also, $150 of that cash will be going straight back to the winners anyway, so he definitely isn’t gouging entrants. It’ll be interesting to see who signs up and I will be following along with the event.
Matchups will be announced live on Friday, with the competition beginning on Monday March 19th, expect to see lots of tweets and Facebook updates about this as brands clamour for your votes.
